Teacher idea: "This character frame helps students organize and better understand a character. Book It frame includes room to expand on the character's personality traits, their role, actions, words, thoughts and feelings, problems/challenges they face, their major accomplishments, and how other characters thought and treated the character being analyzed."
This is a wonderful character lesson for students to assess qualities of different people. I start the lesson off with qualities that a teacher should possess. Of course, they have a lot to say about that – both positive but, mostly negative. Once complete, I have them to assess themselves. Believe it or not most of them are truly honest. There is also a character sheet for students to assess character traits from book characters. Enjoy!
